It is a special office of our Savior’s Blood to plead. Its very existence is the mightiest of prayers. Its presence in heaven is a power which nothing but omnipotence exceeds.
It was the power by which God redeemed man. It is the power by which man prevails with God. It was the oblation which, when actually offered, reconciled the offended Creator to His sinful creatures.
In this respect, also, the devotion to the Precious Blood has a more lively and intimate reality than other devotions.
Conversion is its principal occupation upon earth. It is its own work more than it is ours.
Used for this purpose, it is something more than intercession: it is the doing of the work, at once the prayer and the answer to the prayer.
